Self-esteem is everything. Being in shape is everything too. Everything you are. But what does it matter WHICH shape IN shape is? You need to be healthy, no question… but six-pack abs can have the same heart attack as two kegs and a 2-liter. If how you feel about yourself is skewed, the shape on the outside is relatively meaningless. I don’t think there are enough fitness programs out there that specifically target the self-esteem. Physical fitness programs say that one of the side benefits is a stronger self-esteem, but it never really is the main focus.
I don’t plan on doing anything about this. I love myself and pizza too much to have them waging war against each other.
